Football: Long Beach Poly leading 6-0 at halftime
In a hard-hitting defensive game Long Beach Poly leads visiting St. John Bosco, 6-0, at halftime of tonight's Pac-5 Division semifinal at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
Gerard Wicks scored on a six-yard run late in the first quarter for the only points. Wicks has 78 yards and the Jackrabbits have amassed 154 of their 226 yards on the ground. Poly has hurt itself by committing seven penalties for 45 yards.
